“Each year, hundreds of thousands of our military members transition to civilian life. We are proud that ACS plays a key role in making these transitions successful, evident by the 40% of our workforce who have a military background,” said ACS Managing Partner, Erin Willett. “The HIRE Vets Medallion award, as the only federal level veteran’s employment award that recognizes an employer’s proven commitment to veteran recruiting, hiring, and retention, underscores ACS’s commitment to our veterans and their professional development.”

ACS joins 848 other companies from 49 states, plus the District of Columbia, who have shown a commitment to hiring veterans by ensuring that they have a long-term career and growth plan that uses the diverse skills they acquire through their military service.
